Bootcamp in Cabbagetown

Daryl Hanna is a replicant machine in “Blade Runner”

Apparently Google thinks I am a machine.  According to the blog whisperer I went to see last week, Google doesn’t think I’m a human.  My beloved blog baby needs to be hit more to be alive and breathing.  You need to help me, let’s get my blog viral, like Two Girls, One Cup.  Tell your friends this post is about a bunch of broads and one kettlebell.  Seriously, get the word out, hit me often, and spread me around, take me to your forums and link me to your people.  Follow me on Twitter, too.

Anyway, I wish I were a machine.  If I were a machine, I’d be a replicant, like Daryl Hannah in “Bladerunner.”  How I loved that movie.  I used to pretend I was her in the 80’s and wear my hair all spikey and squeeze my pillow in between my thighs and pretend it was Harrison Ford’s head.  If I were a replicant, I would be fierce at bootcamp.  I would breeze through burpees.  I’d do backflips through the pylons.  My shoelaces would never be an faux issue.  I would hop out of bed this Saturday, November 6 and go to “Kick Bootie -No Duty” without being hindered by some sort of hangover.  You know what, it’s probably the best way to shake off the cobwebs anyway, so I will go.  My bootcamp guru, is Amy from Quantum Physique.  She is a fantastic trainer and runs indoor and outdoor bootcamps year round, all over downtown Toronto.  Check out her website here.  Her special Saturday bootcamp in Cabbagetown is FREE and it’s TWO HOURS so wear your Tena pads because there is a lot of jumping around.  Her website has the details.  And here is Amy, ready for action:

Kick Bootie – No Duty is November 6 from 10 til noon at Spruce Court Public School, 70 Spruce Street

High School Confidential

Christina Hendricks as Joan on Mad Men

Another High School Reunion looms my way.  They keep having them, I can’t keep up.  I’m too old, too tired, and too blind but!  I’m excited to go.  With a little bit of delusional thinking and some Spanx, I am Joan on Mad Men.  So I am going to my gym to whip up a bit, Mayfair Lakeshore Racquet Club (and I am linking  to their website with WARNING:  you have to promise to put the sound off on your computer because they have the most obnoxious song that will you scare half to death…turn it down now…okay…here is the link).  They have a lot of group fitness classes that are actually fun, morning classes alone:  Bootcamp on Monday with Jeff ( this class is gay dancing with dumb bells, or dumb dancing with gay bells, but it is highly entertaining, trust me) , Body Sculpt with Jen (slightly scarey but effective, ahe puts the F U into Fun)  on Wednesday which competes with Spinning with  Amy ( a big dilemma, Amy does freelance bootcamp classes all over Toronto and she is THE best, drop her a line and find out where and when: amy@quantumphysique.ca) , Spinning and Group Power with Tanya on Friday, Spinning with Sandy(brilliant and inspiring) and Yoga with David(my own personal guru)  on Thursdays.  And much more at different times so you can never really get bored.  And if the whole high school “ennui” sets in and if you need a proverbial cig break with the lunch ladies at recess, there is a spa with full services and in the regular change room: a hot tub with jets so powerful, Dwayne Johnson springs to mind:

yes, Dwayne Johnson…aka. The Rock!

Yes, an active imagination and high falutin`fantasy have been propelling me in my forties…oh, and wine also!
